#2. How To Make Money On Pinterest Through Affiliated Or Sponsored Links
Besides, making money on Pinterest using a blog and AdSense account, affiliated or sponsored links are another best way to make money from Pinterest.
This method is very simple to use. In this method, all you need to do is
just recommend products that you love and/or believe will add value to your audience.
Next, when someone makes a purchase through your affiliated or sponsored links, you will earn a commission for it.
To use this method, you will require two things
- A Pinterest account
- A Affiliate account like Amazon, Salesshare etc.
Yes, both these accounts are available for 100% free to sign up and use.
The only thing you need to do is just input the affiliated links directly into your Pinterest account and drive your users straight to the product or service.
If in case you own the blog then you can do this through your blog. The only thing that will change here is- you will redirect your users to the blog post consisting of affiliated links instead of straight to the product or service.
That’s all. Once someone from the audience will make the purchase through your affiliated link, you will get paid commission for the same.
At last, I strongly suggest using the ‘Amazon Affiliate Program’ to start making money immediately. In Amazon, you will immediately start using the affiliate links after signing up.
